diego area before running and winning the mayoral election. he's currently in the midst of week one of two weeks of intensive therapy. the problem here, andrea, is that if he doesn't want to leave, if he doesn't want to resign, recalling him is both hard -- 100,000-plus signatures needed -- and it's costly to collect that many signatures. may not happen until the end of this year, early next year. if he decides he wants to stick it out, stay in office, despite the fact he's been compromised as an elected official, it's hard to get rid of him. >> and the president, of course, in the east room of the white house friday afternoon in august. what more would you want than a presidential news conference before he heads out on vacation. so a lot of questions, but we understand he'll be opening with a statement on the surveillance, the nsa programs. >> that will be the big news maker. obviously, you know, he's not spoken that openly and publicly or extensively about it.
